ICM has yet again participated in the creation of Scinet network

Two network engineers from ICM University of Warsaw – Bartosz Drogosiewicz and Jarosław Skomiał, have been working with the Routing group in the SCinet network and again took part in building the network during the Supercomputing 2022 (SC22) conference which has just ended in Dallas. Thanks to the involvement of ICM employees, the University of Warsaw for the second time in the row gained the formal status of a supplier of network solutions (Bronze Contributor) at the most important HPC event of the year.

Work on building the network begins almost a year before the conference date, and the main emphasis is placed on the use of the most modern network technologies available on the market. ICM’s significant contribution to the construction of the network is the creation of virtual network laboratory run by Bartosz Drogosiewicz and Jarosław Skomiał, enabling testing of the new architecture before its implementation on real devices.

SCinet provides SC conference attendees and the HPC community with the innovative networking platform needed to connect, transport and present HPC researches from around the globe. In addition to high-performance demos, SCinet supports wired and wireless connections to keep conference participants connected to the rest of the world.

SCinet at SC22 in numbers:

  • 175 volunteers
  • 78 organizations
  • 5 countries
  • 29 sponsors who donated support (hardware, software and services) worth USD 70 million
  • WAN throughput – 5.01 Tbps
  • 29 experiences in the area of NRE – Network Research Exhibition

The SC conference – The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis – was held this year between November 13-18 in Dallas under the slogan “HPC Accelerates”.
